120 minutes out of 143. Not bad.
I love this film – it about as perfect a fantasy adventure film as you could make – right up there with the Princess Bride. Johnny Depp is great as Captain Jack, and Keira Knightley is as cute as a button, especially in the redcoat costume towards the end.
I saw the sequel in the theatre recently, and while I don’t exactly regret it, I do wish I hadn’t paid full price for it. It’s not nearly the same caliber of film. It seemed like it could have used a good edit to tighten it up and keep things from dragging.
